My father has been living at Atria Kew Gardens in the memory care area. The staff are so loving and care for my father so well. I tried to care for him myself at home but it was such a struggle and when I made the decision to move him it was a difficult one. But I see now that I made the right choice and everyone has just been so helpful.

They have a caring staff and a hands-on director. You can tell that the people there really like what they're doing, and I feel like you have to have that to be able to deal with people who have dementia and things of that nature. You can tell that they know the residents. After only a few days, they were already telling me things about my loved one that I already knew but things that they could not have known had they not been paying close attention to him. They keep the residents clean, and they learn how each resident is and then work with them according to their own specific needs and preferences. They just provide very good, very hands-on care, and they will call you and let you know what's going on. The staff are very nice.
